I visited several branches especially the branch in up market Bole, Kaldi's has the advantage of being a take away place, unusual in Ethiopia. The coffee is very good as everywhere in Ethiopia.

Recommend for people watching in Bole.

This is an Ethiopian staple. Many locals that I met with recommended Kaldi's as the Ethiopian Starbucks. They were right; like Starbucks, you're going to end up with a bad cup eventually. I ordered a macchiato. The foam was fine, but the coffee itself tasted more like dishwater than coffee. 10 birr or 54 cents. Still, not bad.

Kaldi's is the Starbucks of Ethiopia and you can find many of them in Addis. If you are not a coffee drinker and don't want to try a coffee drink, they make really good chocolate milkshakes. They are thinner than US milkshakes, more like a chocolate milk, but very good. I tried the macchiatto and, even not being a coffee drinker, I really enjoyed it.

Their macchiato's are probably my favorite drink (and their french fries!) Great place to go on Sunday afternoons and sit and chill.
